Basic Education Unit
SY 2018 – 2019

The Sr. Liguori Life Management and Wellness Center (Guidance and Counseling), as an integral part of education, continuously endeavors to promote Scholasticans’ holistic formation through its relevant and need-based programs and services. It aspires to strengthen students’ knowledge, values, skills and competencies that would enable them to have an appreciation of themselves and others, maximize their potentials and manage day-to-day life challenges.

The guidance programs and services are anchored on 3 broad domains namely academic, personal-social and career development. The Personal/Social Development provides the foundation for personal growth and enhances the academic and career development of the students. The Academic Development guides the students to maximize each learning situation. It allows them to experience success and enhance educational potential through effort and commitment to producing high-quality work. The Career Development cultivates a positive attitude toward work.

Thus, annually, it spearheads a Parent-Enrichment Program which aims to equip parents with tools and skills for better understanding of themselves as individuals and have a deeper appreciation of their role as parents.
